Maurizio Sarri: My Father, Amerigo, The Only Person Who Can Make Me Quit Smoking / Sarri On The Verge Of Becoming Chelsea Manager, Plans To Change Chelsea Squad / Two European Superior Club Vs Two English Inferior Clubs. My Take (2) (3) (4)
|Sarri Called Chelsea Inferior Team by Nobody: 9:13pm On Jun 20, 2019|
New Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri said moving to Juventus is a "step forward" in his coaching career after a year with
Chelsea, and said he can understand the scepticism
surrounding his appointment because it has been the same at every club he has been at.
Sarri was presented on Thursday after signing a three-year
contract with the club that has won Serie A for the last eight
Sarri called the Juventus job the "crowning achievement of a
long and difficult career."
"I've taken a long road to get here, from Serie C2 to B, A,
Premier League and now Juventus. It's special to be here. It's
the best squad in Italy," Sarri said. "I'm coming from Chelsea,
which has an inferior history to that of Juventus. It's another
step forward for me.
"Coaching Ronaldo is also an escalation. I coached great
players at Chelsea but with him it's the best in the world. He
already holds all of the records you can have in world football
but I would like help him break some more records."
Sarri signed a three-year contract with the club that has won
Serie A for the last eight seasons.
Sarri's appointment has been greeted with mixed feelings
among Bianconeri fans. He held up his middle finger a group
of Juventus supporters when arriving as coach of their arch-
rivals Napoli in 2018, where he spent three seasons before
joining Chelsea last summer.
"I am used to scepticism," he said at a news conference in
Turin where he was presented as Juve manager. "When I
arrived in Serie C, everybody was sceptical, and it was the
same to begin with at Empoli, at Napoli and when I got to
Chelsea, they were all sceptical.
"Now here at Juventus, I think there could be a bit less
scepticism, but that comes from my history. I only know one
way of taking scepticism away and that is by winning and
Sarri spent the past 12 months in England, where he won the
Europa League -- the first trophy of his career -- with Chelsea,
but said Serie A was a better league tactically. However, he
added Italian football still has a long way to go to match the
Premier League off the pitch.
"I think we have a long path ahead of us," he said. "Going
around English stadiums, you realise how inadequate our
arenas are. There needs to be a cultural shift, as you turn
behind you on the bench and are surrounded by children.
"I think in terms of club organisation and tactically on the
field, we still have the upper hand compared to England."
At Juve, Sarri will find Gonzalo Higuain, who he managed at
both Napoli and Chelsea. There are reports the Argentine is
likely to leave this summer, but Sarri refused to commit to a
decision either way.
"I have not spoken to Gonzalo since the Europa League
victory," Sarri said. "I needed to get an idea of what Juve and
my new surroundings are about.
"When he returns, we will have the chance to talk. Gonzalo has the capability of playing with anybody and I can't see any
problems with him. I really like Higuain, but it's only right that I listen to the management on the players they already have in the squad here and they know better than me.
"I am obliged to trust them on the players they know better
and when we have a clearer idea of our main system of play,
then we can start to talk."
Sarri's season at Chelsea yielded a third-place finish in the
Premier League and the first trophy of his coaching career with triumph in the Europa League, but in spite of these
achievements he had difficulty imposing his style of footbal
